Great Time

We had such a nice, peaceful 3 night stay here. We enjoyed the campfire- just chatting with them and the neighbors. The area was great for a nice walk and bike ride and saw a deer and a skunk! Jim and Susie both were great in helping us navigate in and out. Would definitely stay again. We travel in 38 ft fifth wheel

This is a fabulous BDW! Very welcoming and friendly couple. Unfortunately, due to covid we didn't get to spend much time with them but we did a little social distancing around the fire pit one night! Easy parking, great hookups. Thank you both so very much for accommodating us during our stay. Hope to see you in AZ!

Jim and Susie where great. They invited us to join them at their campfire and shared refreshments with us. We would recommend them highly. Rode our bikes around the lakeside community.

A truly gracious host couple. They made our first BW experience a complete success.

Very nice hosts

Our hosts were wonderful and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay. It was very easy to get in and out of the spot. We did have to back out but it was a straight back up which was easy even for our 35 ft fifth wheel. There's a pretty lake nearby. We would stay here again.

No number on the house, number on mailbox.

Nice folks, nice spot

We were warmly welcomed, guided to the site by host. Unfortunately we didn't have much visiting time, hopefully next trip.
Site was as described plus it had plenty of maneuvering room, a boon to novices like us.

Autumn Haven

Our host guided us into our perfect spot and was so welcoming along with her 2 sweet dogs. Never got to meet husband as he was working. Beautiful area and the info she gave us of places to see was great. Wouldn't hesitate to stay with these folks again. Thanks so much 😍

Great location

This was by far the most comfortable offering we’ve had at any Boondocker’s Welcome location. We were offered 30 amp service, water hook up AND dump!
The hosts were very friendly! The location is not far from the turnpike and easy in/out.
Will definitely look them up on any trips that take us near them in the future!!

Fantastic hosts

We stayed for a night. We arrived before our host and set up. When she got home she came to say hello. Even offered use of their fire ring. Unfortunately it rained that day do we weren't able to take them up on the offer.

The next day she even came out to tell us good bye.

Such nice hosts!

Wines and covered bridges

What a great place. We stayed 2 nights and were welcomed warmly with a brochure of things to do in Ashtabula county. Gave us recommendations on the wineries and the covered bridges which is very close to them. We chatted with them for a couple of hours in the evening
If you like visiting wineries or covered bridges this is the place to be.
We hope to meet up with them on the road somewhere.

Great, peaceful stay!

Wish we could have stayed longer! The location was beautiful and there was plenty of room to park our 42ft fifth wheel. The hosts are amazing, we enjoyed chatting with them and they showed us all around the lake community. If you’re in the area, this is a great place to stop!

Excellent Host

What a great place to stay. The camping setup was amazing and the host were the best. Wish we could've spent more time getting to know them. This is definitely a place we'll come back to..
